The Willow Domestic Violence Center has appointed a new president and CEO. Meaghan Lacey de Chateauvieux will lead the organization formerly known as Alternatives for Battered Women.

She joined the organization in 2013 as Director of Development and Marketing. De Chateauvieux recently led Willow in partnership with two other executive team members.

She says that Willow is working to “strengthen our partnerships, to expand our programs and prevention efforts, and to remove barriers that survivors face on their journey to safety and healing.”

De Chateauvieux follows Marisol Ramos-Lopez in the CEO role, who was named chief executive in March and left the position in May.

Before Ramos-Lopez, Bonnie DeVinney was interim president. DeVinney had led the organization after Jaime Saunders, Willow's former president and CEO, left the job to become the president and CEO of the United Way of Greater Rochester last January.
